Thai police investigate German man's death
May 13, 2009, 8:26 GMT

Bangkok - Thai police launched an investigation Wednesday into the
death of a 22-year-old German man whose body was found on Khao Lak
beach, one of the resorts hardest hit by the 2004 tsunami.

The body of Sebastian Wolff was found on the beach early Wednesday
near the Barisa Resort bungalows where he was staying with his German
friend Florian Zehentmair, 21, in Khao Lak, Phang Nga province, about
500 kilometres south of Bangkok.

'His face was badly bruised as if he had been in a fight,' Phang Nga
Police Major Pachasart Buageow said. 'We have sent the body for an
autopsy to determine the cause of death.'

Wolff and Zehentmair had been drinking with some Thai youths on the
beach Tuesday night.

'When we questioned Zehentmair about what happened he said he couldn't
remember,' Pachasart told the German Press Agency dpa in a telephone

The police also questioned the Thai youths the two tourists had been
drinking with. The youths denied fighting with the Germans, Pachasart

Khao Lak was one of several Andaman Sea beach resorts hit by the
December 26, 2004, tsunami which killed more than 5,000 people in
Thailand, about half of them foreign tourists.
